Much of the recent discussion surrounding David Fincher rightfully has to do with his adaptation of Gillian Flynn‘s Gone Girl, currently shaping up to be his biggest domestic hit. Today, however, we’re going back more than a decade to explore his Fight Club follow-up, the contained thriller Panic Room. While it’s inexplicably not yet available on Blu-ray, the DVD release is packed with special features and a few have made their way online.
Notably we have an hour-long making-of documentary titled Shooting Panic Room that goes through the extensive pre-visualization process, the physical construction of the 4-story brownstone — engineered so Fincher’s camera can seamlessly move around — as well as capturing candid moments with Jodie Foster, Kristen Stewart, Jared Leto, Forest Whitaker, and more across the 145-day shoot. Cinematographer Conrad Hall also discusses replacing Darius Khondji while Fincher’s technical precision is fully on display.

Panic Room is currently available on DVD.
